Many terms describe the automation trend used by various organizations: Intelligent Automation, Cognitive Automation, Cognitive RPA, and even Hyperautomation. These are all variations on a theme, even if each source promoting them tries to distinguish them from each other.

AI could be machine learning, deep learning, cognitive vision, etc. that infers a decision using data versus traditional programming. We will use Hyperautomation interchangeably with Intelligent Automation for practical purposes.
